With the rapid emergence of online devices from cell phones to tablets to PCs, an unstoppable, invisible force is changing human lives in ways from the microscopic to the gargantuan: Big Data, a word that was barely used a few years ago but now governs the day for many of us. This massive gathering and analyzing of data in real time is allowing us to not only address some of humanity’s biggest challenges but is also helping create a new kind of planetary nervous system. The Human Face of Big Data captures the promise and peril of this extraordinary knowledge revolution. Join us following the film for a great discussion. (Event Is Open to the Public. Admission is by Donation.)
